AmeriCorps Launched in fall of 2015 with support from the Serve Montana and the Corporation for National & Community Service, MTCC's AmeriCorps Program supports college access and success work across Montana by deploying college student AmeriCorps members who provide coaching and support to first generation and low income K-12 students and families. AmeriCorps members serving with the program provide a variety of direct service activities, supporting youth-focused programming, college application nights, FAFSA applications, and norming the idea of college going.

Apply Now to host an MTCC AmeriCorps Team to support college access and success programming. MTCC AmeriCorps teams are dedicated to encouraging students and families to consider, plan for, and apply for post secondary education.
Montana Campus Compact at the University of Montana hosts AmeriCorps and AmeriCorps VISTA programs. We have members serving throughout the state who are focused on food security, poverty alleviation, student success, and college access.
At Montana Campus Compact, we have the ability to offer an Education Award of $1222 though our AmeriCorps Team Member program. This opportunity is for work-study or intern students working directly with youth on student-success and college-access focused programming.
The requirement is that the students complete 300 hours as an AmeriCorps team member with your organization by August 31st, 2017. As an added bonus, some Montana campuses will also match that education award (e.g. University of Montana matches $1000.) To be eligible for an MTCC AmeriCorps Team Member, your organization submits a work plan for the Team Member to work 300 hours and also provides some reporting to AmeriCorps. There is no fee to host an AmeriCorps Team Member.
